Common Sense Media: Best Cartoons for Kids

14 of 15

'Generator Rex'

Synopsis: Thoughtful sci-fi cartoon with monsters is best for tweens.

Age: 11+

Rating: * * * *

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this sci-fi/adventure cartoon is better suited for tweens than it is for kids due to a good deal of violence (guns, knives, and large explosions, for instance) with little real-world consequence and plenty of monsters of all shapes and sizes. What’s more, the intricacies of Rex’s struggles with his own identity and good decision-making are too weighty for kids to grasp. That said, the show is a rare find for tweens, blending a mature storyline about a teen’s inner battle between his sense of responsibility and his very different personal desires with an enticing plot of mystery and adventure. - Common Sense Media
